“Beautiful, Charming a special place to create memories”
Reviewed 29 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

My husband and I along with our 10 year old daughter were fortunate enough to stay at Madeline Cottage early October 2014. It would not be and exaggeration to say that our stay was sublime. Gretchen's the cottage's owner has created a very unique and special home. You can truly feel the spirit of the place wrapping around you like a warm blanket! The piece of land that the cottage is on is private at the end of cul-de-sac and right on the lake. There are special places all over the property. From the canoe at the lake's edge to the picnic table, the swing and the charming garden. The cottage itself has everything one needs, even a piano! We woke under the skylight ceilings to beautiful blue skies, golden and red leaves and the sun shimmering off the lake. It doesn't get any better than that. After our days out, we would return, cook a simple meal and have our meal fireside in the charming dining nook. It is not a house for a large family, there is a queen bed in the main room and a twin in the other room, but for our little family, it was perfect. We took the canoe out, heard loons on the lake and were even visited by the neighbor's corgi. We are so grateful to Gretchen for sharing this wonderful place with us. Madeline Cottage will always have a fond spot in our hearts and memories...

“Beautiful and Quiet”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

I was looking for: 1) quiet, 2) water, 3) pet friendly, 4) fishing, 5) central location and if I could find it; 7) a piano....

The cottage is beautiful and exactly as its pictured, the pond and the dock are steps away, and the Loons in the morning are something special. Brought the dog and the teenager and spouse and were even visitied by friends for a night. We had campfires, caught way to many bass, saw an American Bald Eagle and my stepson caught his first fish!!!!

From this location you can visit Camden and Belfast (or Belview) Maine? and Acadia -
Owner is friendly and accomodating and delt with her entirely by phone, text or email -

No issues, and would rent again... wonderful place (bring bug spray)

“Serene and restorative week on a lovely lake”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

My husband and I have stayed on all of the lakes in Lincolnville and this place was one of the best. The house is compact and well-designed. It has a good kitchen, an extremely pleasant and comfortable living room with windows completely lining three walls so it is airy and connected to the lovely perennial garden and large lawn that extends down to the lake. The bedroom is very bright, lit by a skylight and windows that provide gorgeous views of the lake. It is a pleasure to lie in bed in the morning and gaze out. The road is private, and although there are quite a few summer cottages around the lake, it is quiet--no loud motorboats. The swimming is great, and it is a lot of fun to paddle the canoe around the lake which is irregularly shaped, with interesting coves. A pair of loons call to one another at night, and the night is illuminated by the brightest flashes of fireflies I've ever seen. It doesn't take long to drive to interesting nearby towns: Camden and Rockland to the south, Belfast to the north. One can take the ferry over to Islesboro (an island quite close) from Lincolnville Beach and enjoy a lobster dinner and great view near the Lincolnville dock. The only complaints we had: black flies that gave us plenty of bites (common at the end of June in Maine), the second floor got stuffy on hot days, and the bed was too soft. Otherwise, we had a wonderful time and would very much like to return.

“I have never awoken to a better view”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

My wife scored major points for picking out this charming little cottage for us to visit with our 11-year old daughter. It was just perfect for a short, relaxing break, and we did not want to leave. The cottage itself is quite cosy. The setting is wonderful, right on the edge of a peaceful pond, and I awoke every morning to a picture perfect view of the pond, sometimes accompanied by loon calls. We swam in the pond, and our daughter loved taking the canoe out on her own (felt very grown up to do that). We built a fire at the fire ring by the water, and ate dinner a few feet away on the elevated deck. Hard to think of a better place for attitude adjustment. It's a 4-mile drive to Lincolnville Beach, and a few miles further than that to Belfast or Camden. I would love to return. Our only complaint was that the bed was too soft, my wife found it rather uncomfortable to sleep in.
